I’ve been playing today with mixed media from a lesson by Rae Missingman via Lifebook 2016. This is “layers of love”, a great way to build up lots of layers. It’s perfect for the Mixed Media Challenge.
I used a variety of Golden, Liquitex, FW Pearlescent’s, craft paint, Posca Pens, Gel Pens, book paper, stickles, china markers, dylusions, and stamps. If you haven’t heard of Lifebook 2016, I encourage you to join up – if you like mixed media, it’s a wonderful course that lasts the entire year.
Here are a few other projects I’ve done in this course and apply to the challenge theme.

Hello friends! Happy Monday! I’m here with Sketch #154 at From The Heart Stamps. These are great challenges because you can use just the sketch, or if you’d like, add the twist. The only requirement is that you use a From The Heart image. The rest is up to you. The twist for this challenge is “Show Off Your Coloring”.
For my card today I used image, “Harriet PigWit Mud Bath”, one of the fun new PigWit digis. I colored her up with watercolors and used a Impressions Impressions background stamp. The flag die is My Favorite Things.
I hope you’ll join us for the sketch this week at From The Heart Stamps for sketch #154!
For my card today I used the beautiful image called, “Magical Dancer Bust.” I colored her up with Copic Markers and framed her using My Minds Eye “Fancy That” collection. The background features a My Favorite Things stamp and a few embellishments from My Minds Eye. The gold in this paper doesn’t photograph well, but it’s really lovely in real life.
It’s the fourth Wednesday of the Month and time for The House That Stamps Built sketch challenge. You have until Tuesday, May 31st to enter for a chance to win a $25.00 gift certificate at Repeat Impressions.
Here’s the Sketch:
For my card I’ve created a flower using the Repeat Impressions Star Silhouette (lg) 5111-H and Star Silhouette (sm) 5140-C to create this photo themed card using this weeks sketch. I stamped the stars on pattern paper by Fancy Pants called “Memories Captured” using Versafine Black Onyx Ink, then heat embossed with clear powder.
Hope you’ll join us at The House That Stamps Built, you may be our next winner! Hope you’ve also had a chance to stop by and check out the new Flower Power release and don’t forget to get your discount code from my blogs sidebar when you shop at Repeat Impressions Stamps.
The Crafty Nurse here sharing more inky goodness with the May Release Beautiful Faces #PS016 from Palettini collection ofTechnique Junkies. I don’t make a lot of ATC’s, but the size of this new set really works for smaller projects.
The background is call “Soused Suede” from the October 2006 Technique Junkies Newsletter. Yes, an oldie but a goodie. I wanted to do some no-line coloring so I began with Antique Linen Distress Ink, then colored this lovely lady with Daniel Smith watercolors in Quinacridone Violet, Cadmium Yellow Deep Hue, and Cadmium Red Hue. I took some liberty in putting back some lines with a Pitt Pen.
We are fast closing the chapter on our May release and am looking forward to seeing what the June collection brings Until then, stop by Technique Junkies store to pick up this gorgeous set. See you soon!
Hello friends! Happy Monday! I’m here with this weeks sketch challenge at From The Heart Stamps. These are great challenges because you can use just the sketch, or if you’d like, add the twist. The only requirement is that you use a From The Heart image – the rest is up to you. The twist for this challenge is to “fussy cut your image”.
I used only the sketch this week with one of the classic love digi’s called, “True Love” which I colored up with Copic Markers. The design paper is My Favorite Things as are the circle and flag dies. I finished off with a Hero Arts gem and wink of stella on her veil.
You have until Sunday, May 29th to enter Sketch #153 at From The Heart Stamps. Hope to see you there!

The design paper is from Glitz “Felicity” collection. The sentiments are from Simon Says Stamp in Kristina Werner’s handwriting.

For my card today I used the beautiful image called, “Magical Poppy Dancer.” I began by coloring this image with Copic Markers. I then used a Spellbinders die to cut out colored vellum for a lovely frame, then placed another frame of craft card stock over the entire image. My background is a My Favorite Things script stamp in Hero Arts Vanilla, my sentiment comes from Tim Holtz rub-ons, and I finished off with some hemp twine.
